Westone Bit Entertainment (ウエストン·ビット·エンタテインメント, Weston Bitto Entateinmento) was a computer game developer founded in May 1986 and based in Mukoujima, Sumida-ku, Tokyo. They were most famous for the Wonder Boy/Monster World series. Originally called Escape, the company was renamed to Westone as the word Escape made them sound unreliable.[1] The company's name was changed yet again to Westone Bit Entertainment in April 2000.[2] The chief publisher was Ryuichi Nishizawa. The company went bankrupt and entered liquidation process in October 1, 2014.[3]

The Westone name is derived from the first characters of the names of company founders, Ryuuichi Nishizawa (Nishi = West) and Michishito Ishizuka (Ishi = Stone).[1]
